Craig Ranch Regional Park Logo

After three years and $130 million, the Craig Ranch Regional Park is finally open to the public.  The park is located on the north side of Craig Road between North Commerce Street and Revere Street.  Parking entrances are off Craig, Commerce, and Lone Mountain Road.

This park is approximately 170 acres in size with a further expansion of an additional 70 acres planned for the future.  The land for the park was originally settled by early Vegas pioneers in 1905 and was farmed by the McFarland family until 1925.  After they abandoned the ranch, George Craig and his family took over and continued farming there until the 1960s when they sold it to John Stimson who turned the ranch into a golf course which he operated until 2005 when it was taken over by the city of North Las Vegas.

Please respect the park hours which are from 6:00 AM to 11:00 PM.

The park is well lit at night, but that doesn't mean we need an LPC every 528 feet. 
No Lamp Post Caches!



On opening day, the park provided two large playgrounds for children.  This cache provides a nice view of the Adventure Playground where you can "See Emily Play." Adventure Playground


"See Emily Play" was the second single release by Pink Floyd.  It was written by its original lead, Syd Barrett.  It was not initially released as part of album in the UK, but it did appear in the US edition of their debut album, The Piper at the Gates of Dawn.  The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included it in their 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

If a FTF has been recorded and you are having trouble finding this cache, post a DNF or send us an email. We'll send you a hint.
